An Inside Look at the Orlane Institute in Paris
Effortless, refined, minimal, and très chic: perhaps the best way we could describe the French approach to beauty. We traveled all the way to Paris to find the skincare secrets of French women, who are known for gorgeous skin and youth that never fades. We went straight to our Parisian brand, Orlane, at the acclaimed Orlane Institute to discover how we can achieve the glow we’ve been searching for.
Fountain of youth, here we come!
The Orlane Institute is nestled in the heart of the 16th arrondissement of Paris and a few blocks away from the Eiffel Tower, so we couldn’t help but feel incredibly chic once we entered their building. The minute we stepped into the hallways of the Orlane institute, we were instantly transported into a deep blue hallway that drowned out the noise of outside traffic and filled us with calm.Let the adventure begin!
Here at the institute, Orlane’s exclusive method is to reinitialize skin by also enabling it to restore its original properties. They claim that this beauty ritual combines well-being with optimal effectiveness for exceptional care, which we were very excited to experience for ourselves!
We were given a fluffy white robe and was lead into a tranquil room, where we received the B21 facial. The facial contains Orlane’s signature B21 serum, a bio-energic complex that contains regenerating wheatgerm protein, firming soya extract, and sodium hyaluronate for deep hydration. We were intrigued to see whether the Orlane ambition, which is to bring the skin's cells to a younger condition so they will function as young cells, would be immediately apparent after this.
The treatment started with a stimulation of the skin and its oxidation. It was then followed by toning, regeneration using the stimulation of the nervous system, a reprogramming of the facial muscle layer and restoring its vital functions. The resulting effect was also enhanced with a collagen mask. This ultimate deep nutrition will brighten the skin and the overall treatment will visibly reduce all signs aging!
When we came out of the spa room to regroup, the results were stunning. Our skin looked and felt incredible. They truly took to heart their ambition, because the treatment was the most genuine experience just as they claimed. It combined effectiveness, emotion, luxury, and sensuality all at the same time, and we couldn’t have been more satisfied.
Our skin felt soft, smooth, had even texture and had the incredible Instagram glow we’ve always wanted. We left the Institute to start our day in Paris and looked just as incredible as we felt.
Thank you, Orlane!
